Sports clubs

University of Sussex sports clubs are run by the Students' Union, please see their website for a list of the clubs you can join. 

Sussex has a diverse mix of student sports clubs with plenty of opportunity for competitive sport. There's something for everyone, with club activity ranging from Archery to Volleyball and Mountaineering to Surf and Snow. And if the club or society of your dreams doesn't exist, then start one! You only need three members to form a club or society at Sussex.

Most clubs have weekly training sessions with expert coaches and compete in local, regional and national level competitions. And if you’re a talented student sportsperson, we offer Sports Scholarships to help you develop as an athlete.

You can show your support for our sports teams at matches and spectators are welcome to attend. Home games take place on Wednesday afternoons at the Sport CentreFalmer Sports Complex, Mandela Hall in Falmer House and Russell's Clump. 


British Universities and Colleges Sports (BUCS) leagues are the highlight for many of our student teams, with Sussex frequently in the top 50 universities in the BUCS rankings.
